IELTS Reading: choose the title

 Read the passage below, and select the best title from the following list.

A) The 2020s: a decade of challenges
B) Work in the 2020s: how to succeed
C) Essential skills in a changing job market

So what are the five essential skills that workers will need to navigate a changing work environment — and flourish in the next decade?
